A feather duster tube can be pretty stiff.
Does the yellowy color inside the tube move at all, or is it hard as well?

it moves, and it doesnt have any feathers, it has a mouth that sucks in flakes... It is really weird, an it moves around the diameter of the inside of the tube

yup, sounds like a worm that lost its feathers
if that's the case, they should grow back over a few months time
